Introduction

 

asus-rog-rampage-vi-extreme-motherboard-review_01

 

ASUS's ROG Rampage VI Extreme is the default king of ASUS's current X299 lineup, and today we have it in the testing lab where we will torture it. The motherboard is unique in more than one way, but it also boasts some redefined hardware and characteristics compared to ASUS's first wave of X299 motherboards.

 

 

While ASUS's original X299 motherboards are still very well equipped to handle Intel's HCC (up to 18C) parts, Intel even used them for reference scores for the 7980XE, the Rampage VI Extreme features some reworked socket circuitry and improved VRM cooling to better handle the new CPUs. The motherboard actually doesn't even support Kaby Lake-X CPUs, and only supports the new Skylake-X CPUs, and as such is focused on supporting the new CPUs to their maximum.

 

Let's see what ASUS has to offer with the Rampage VI Extreme.
